My daughter loved receiving the boxes in the mail monthly. The shipping and packaging was wonderful. Each container of slime was colorful, creative, and had different smells. I loved that each month, the contents in the box matched a theme. For example, in February my daughter received Valentines colored items. The extra items sent with the boxes are very inexpensive. The first box included a dog squishy that was dirty. Most of the extra items were not used.
